ふーる

 Ryukyu (Okinawa)

fuuru [ɸuːɾu]

Definition

Noun

  1. A latrine; a lavatory; a toilet; a bathroom
  2. A traditional pig toilet or pig's sty latrine

Etymology

Likely related to standard Japanese ふろ【風呂】 furo, a "bathtub" or "bathroom".

Notes

The term ふーる fuuru traditionally referred to a lavatory or rather outhouse connected below to a pig's sty made of stone (also called うゎーふーる 'waafuuru), where the pigs would essentially feed on human waste. Originally imported from China where it remains used, the practice was banned in Okinawa following the American takeover at the end of World War II.
